Every day that it’s 80+ degrees and humid, I try to remember to be grateful it’s not snowing!
Personally, I prefer being too hot to being too cold. Not that I enjoy being sweaty, but I have one of those circulations that’s easier to cool down than warm up.
Kitties too love the warmth. How they can lie prone in the sun on these super hot days is beyond me. And they seemingly go out of their way to avoid being in the wind direction of a fan or AC blower.
That said, they need to stay hydrated. And for the most part, they understand that. But we have to make it a little easier for them to find water. In multiple places.
I’ve written here before that many cats do not like their water to be near their food. You say they like drinking out of the faucet or shower or your water glass? To me that means they don’t like seeing their bowl next to their food. Put a small bowl or glass or coffee cup of water on your coffee table, in the corner of a room, next to the bathtub, on the kitchen counter or bath sink — wherever you think the little furball might find it interesting to come across. Make it at least 2 bowls or glasses. Ceramic or glass will keep the water slightly cooler.
And be sure to clean the containers! Just like us, kitties produce saliva when they eat and drink — and it falls into those containers, creating a gunky bottom.
Ok, enough learning for today. Time for a refreshing drink!
